Glen Cove City Councilman Anthony Jimenez has been selected as one of Long Island’s Top Latinos by LaFiesta Radio. The award is presented to individuals of Latino heritage who have unselfishly dedicated their time to enhance their communities and promote the positive contributions made by the Latino community. The award was presented to Jimenez at a ceremony held on Feb. 4.
Jimenez was recognized for many of his community contributions including his tireless involvement with the City of Glen Cove Youth Board, as chairman of Glen Cove’s SAFE Initiative, his work at local soup kitchens and his involvement as a Youth Mentor.
“Mr. Jimenez is an extraordinary person who has dedicated much of his life to serving others,” said Nassau County Administrative Judge Anthony Marano. “He is a tremendous asset to the Nassau County Courts and the residents of Glen Cove and Nassau County.”
